Things I should do every day
There's nothing revolutionary on this list, but maybe that's the point. So much of success is habit.
1. Get at least 7 hours of sleep
Sleep is so crucial to helping me feel at the top of my game.
2. Drink a lot of water
Both in general, and in place of other beverages.
3. Practice active gratitude
Morning and night, if possible.
I think by writing, so journaling is the best way to clarify my thoughts, opinions, and feelings. It doesn't need to be anything standardized or formal, or anything long and involved-- any form of writing works.
5. Go outside
Even if it's just for 10 minutes. Fresh air is great for clearing my head.
For me, this basically amounts to lying on the floor and trying to think of nothing for 10 minutes. It's amazing how that alone helps with self-discipline, patience, and learning to be non-reactive.
7. Talk to someone I love
For an ever-constant reminder of the "why" in life
8. Play a game of chess
Or do a lesson. Or practice my tactics. Really anything to keep moving forward actively with my gameplay.
9. Eat an apple after dinner
I'm a fan of Granny Smiths and Pink Ladies, in particular.
10. Create a new idea list :)
This speaks for itself!
11. Learn something new
Whether by listening to a podcast, reading an informative article, or having a conversation.
